Overview:

The Dell PowerVault™ 114T/114X tape rack enclosure allows up to two tape drives to be externally attached to up to two PowerEdge™ rack servers or PowerVault network attached storage systems.

The Dell PowerVault™ 114T/114X rackable subsystem is a convenient 2U tape rack enclosure. It incorporates many tape technologies commonly used today and is designed to complement Dell PowerEdge™ rack servers and Dell PowerVault network attached storage (NAS). The Dell PowerVault 114T/114X tape rack enclosure offers superior capacity in a 2U form factor.

  • PowerVault 114T can be configured with one or two LTO-3 (Full-Performance), LTO-3-060, LTO-2-L or DAT72 tape.
  • PowerVault 114X can be configured with one or two LTO3-080, LTO-4-120 and LTO5-140 tape, as well as one or two RD1000 drives.

RD1000 Rackable Solution

114X RD1000: Rackable Solution, configurable with up to two RD1000 drives bases and upgradeable up to four drives using drive upgrade kit USB. The USB cables come in two different lengths of 2M and 3M. Includes Symantec™ Backup Exec™ Quickstart for easily scheduled backups.

Removable Disk Drive vs. Other StorageRemovable Disk Drive vs. Other Storage

The benefits of using a high-capacity, removable disk drive and accompanying cartridge like the Dell PowerVault RD1000 are evident when compared to alternative backup media. Rugged, removable disk media offers increased portability and durability over standard USB-based hard drive storage. 

The PowerVault RD1000 cartridges are built to withstand a fall from nearly one meter so they are very durable, plus the removable disk cartridges are small and lightweight and can be stored offsite for better disaster recovery protection. The PowerVault RD1000 provides easy expandability, when you reach capacity with one removable disk cartridge, just insert in a new one — there's no need to buy additional hardware. Plus the PowerVault RD1000 includes Symantec Backup Exec Quickstart software that provides data protection for faster data restores and reduced downtime.

The PowerVault RD1000 features a protective disk drive cartridge that is available in 160 GB, 320 GB, 500 GB, 640 GB and 1 TB capacities. The RD removable disk cartridges are all interchangeable and preformatted. Archiving a collection of PowerVault RD1000 disk cartridges takes considerably less room than a similar amount of DVDs or CDs — it would take 36 standard DVDs to hold the volume of a single 320 GB removable disk cartridge — all while saving shelf space.

Symantec Backup Exec Quickstart included with the PowerVault RD1000 provides easy-to-use, backup and disaster recovery capabilities to protect files, as well as all user data to help provide faster restores and reduced downtime.

SymantecIntuitive Management

The PowerVault RD1000 provides Symantec Backup Exec Quickstart software for a complete backup of all of your system data. This easy-to-use software includes backup protection for Windows user and bare metal disaster recovery on all compatible Dell PowerEdge server and Dell Workstations.

Symantec Backup Exec Quickstart included with the PowerVault RD1000 provides easy-to-use, backup and disaster recovery capabilities to protect files, as well as all user data to help provide faster restores and reduced downtime.

Hard Drive Speed and ReliabilityHard Drive Speed and Reliability

The PowerVault RD1000 removable disk cartridge contains a serial ATA (SATA) II hard drive, the same technology that Dell uses across the PowerVault disk storage line, the PowerEdge server line, and the Dell Precision™ Workstations external drive. SATA II hard drive technology is a reliable, industry-standard for storage, and an ideal long-term and durable media. Files transfer to the PowerVault RD1000 at about the same time it would take to save to your regular PC drive, up to 30 MB/sec — much faster than backing up to standard tape, and without the hassle of swapping out media due to capacity constraints. 

Cartridge Drop Test:
RD1000 160 GB, 320 GB, 500 GB, 640 GB and 1 TB cartridges have been qualified to withstand a drop of 1M to a tile over concrete floor. In most cases the RD1000 cartridges can withstand drops of up to 1.5M.

Tough and Compact FormTough and Compact Form

The PowerVault RD1000 functions lying flat or on its edge, and its compact profile takes up very little space on a desk, or close to your server, enabling a backup solution that doesn't require rethinking your office arrangement. The removable disk cartridge is designed for durability, and easily fits into a briefcase, backpack, or even a coat pocket. 

The PowerVault RD1000 simple plug-and-play USB connection enables you to backup more than one system, or move it from home to office as you need. Each removable disk drive cartridge weighs about as much as a cell phone, and is only slightly larger.

Key Benefits:

Space-Conscious, Flexible Capacity

The Dell PowerVault 114T/114X rackable subsystem offers a cost-effective, scalable solution for a variety of tape backup and archival needs. Holding up to 6.0 TB of native data (when using two LTO-5-140 drives), it provides excellent capacity in a 2U form factor that addresses your critical space concerns. Plus, it can be configured with up to two LTO-5-140, two LTO-4-120, two LTO-3, full-performance or two LTO-3-060 tape drives for exceptional flexibility and scalability.

Performance

The PowerVault 114T/114X incorporates many tape technologies commonly used today and is designed to complement Dell PowerEdge rack servers and Dell PowerVault network attached storage. When configured with LTO™ drives, the PowerVault 114T/114X delivers impressive performance and high levels of reliability, giving you a dependable, high-performance backup solution. What's more, two SCSI ports or two SAS ports with LTO-3-060, LTO-3 full performance, LTO-4-120 and LTO-5-140 enable two drives to run in parallel, which can help reduce backup time for multiple server environments.

Capacity

The PowerVault 114T/114X holds up to 3.0 TB of compressed (2:1) data when using LTO-5-140 drives (114X). This allows a very high capacity for backing up in a slim-rack optimized format.

Ease of Use

As an extension to the PowerVault lineup of products, the PowerVault 114T/114X allows you to easily connect drives externally while still incorporating a rack-optimized backup solution into your environment. Compatible with Dell rail kits, the tape rack enclosure can typically be installed in minutes.

The PowerVault 114T/114X offers easy manageability. It is simple to deploy, use and maintain with a tool-less chassis that enables you to install or remove a drive or component quickly. And the top of the unit is removable to allow easy access to the drives and components. Plus, it features two drive bays, two SCSI/SAS cables, a power supply and fans. The subsystem also includes two status LEDs on the front bezel so you know at a glance that your system is operating correctly. The PowerVault 114T/114X is ideal for customers who require an affordable, simple-to-use tape storage solution that incorporates a wide range of tape technologies while providing exceptional capacity and performance in a small form factor.

Reliability

The PowerVault 114T/114X uses highly reliable "super drives" in the LTO-5, LTO-4, LTO-3 and LTO-3-060 drive technologies which typically boast 250,000 MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) and can be counted on to provide solid reliability to help increase uptime.
